In_Sync - Warm/Storm [ird027]
Lee Purkis is InSync. Lee was one of the founding owners of the legendary and influential shop Fat Cat Records. His releases are highly sought after classics. 'Storm', the first InSync release on Irdial-Discs, is the most requested 12" in our catalogue. Others had been offered the tape of this masterpiece, but refused to consider releasing it because "...the qwalit'ee wuddnt be gud enuf inaaat..." (it was mastered onto cassette).
We of course realized that many of the revered and sought after classics of Techno were mastered from 'inferior' sources, and so we released it, cutting directly from the cassette. A classic was unleashed to the public which might otherwise have been lost for no good reason.

The wonderousness of being In Sync.
Irdial were one of those labels I always checked out as a DJ back in the early 90's, always interesting and occasionally kicking ! This was one that was a perfect combination of both. A total classic 12". Getting Lee Purkiss to DJ at our Pussypower club night in Glasgow was a highlight, just wish I could find the tape of his performance !
